Saving for Lean Times glycogen synthesis Dietary intake of glucose or carbohydrates frequently exceeds immediate need. Energy from excess glucose can be stored as fat or glycogen: Fat: More compact (cal/g), special storage site (white adipose), unlimited storage capacity Disadvantage: slow delivery; breakdown will not directly yield glucose unsuitable for brain Glycogen: Intracellular, limited storage capacity Advantage: readily available glucose reserve

Insulin increases the # of transporters at the cell surface Blood glucose levels fluctuate: Fasting: 3.9-5.6 mM After meal: 10 mM or more Transport of glucose into cells GLUT: A family of glucose transporters with distinct biochemical properties and tissue distribution

Possible fates of glucose 6-phosphate Glycolysis Pentose phosphate pathway Glycogen synthesis (after conversion to glucose 1-P) Glucokinase (liver)

Glycogen synthesis 1) Requires an activated form of glucose: UDP-glucose 2) UDP-glucose is added to the non-reducing ends of glycogen 3) Remodeling (branching) is needed for continued synthesis
